Chicken Florentine (with a twist!)

Chicken Florentine is a great way to make a weeknight dinner a bit more special. I mean, cheese! wine! spinach! hello! Also? done in around 30 minutes. BOOM.

I like to spice up chicken as much as I can because it can be bland and tiresome when used frequently.

This recipe is actually much simpler than it appears; all that is required is the preparation of a quick filling, stuffing, and cooking of chicken breasts. A basic (but decadent-tasting) pan sauce is then prepared in the same pan as the chicken breasts.

This Florentine Chicken dish has a slight variation since I add blue cheese to the stuffing. This gives it an amazing flavor that goes perfectly with the spinach.

My preferred method for making this recipe calls for blue cheese, but I’ve also made it successfully using feta in place of the blue cheese. Really, you could put anything inside a chicken breast and top it with a rich sauce and I’d be content!

Typically, it means that something has spinach in it.

It’s actually French, vs Italian – which is funny, hey? Originall, French folks associated spinach with Florence, but the reason why is not clear other than they may have associated it with the birthplace of a person who introduced spinach to the French. Aren’t you glad you read this?

The one in THIS recipe is a pan sauce, served over the top of Florentine stuffed chicken and involves dijon mustard, garlic, onions, wine, stock and a little sour cream to make it creamy.

I love serving mine with a simple salad, or some Roasted Broccoli, as well as maybe Risotto or mashed potatoes.

Ingredients explained:


  • OLIVE OIL – you could use vegetable oil if you’d prefer.
  • ONION – dice this up super finely.
  • GARLIC – because, duh. Garlic is delicious.
  • BABY SPINACH – I use fresh spinach. You could use frozen spinach, but ensure it is thawed and squeezed very dry.
  • BLUE CHEESE – totally optional. If you don’t have it, or don’t like it – feta or a little cream cheese also works. A little parmesan cheese will help amp up the flavor as well.
  • DIJON MUSTARD – don’t sub this for yellow mustard. A good substitute would be whole grain, stone ground or deli mustard.


  • OLIVE OIL – can sub for a few tablespoons of butter if you prefer.
  • CHICKEN – I use relatively small boneless skinless chicken breasts because they cook faster. If yours are large – you’ll need to cook them longer (remember 165 degrees F). Alternatively – you could sear them, and pop them in the oven for a few minutes to speed up the cooking.


  • ONION – shallot goes really well in pan sauces, but I don’t always have shallots.
  • WINE – I use a dry white wine (such as a sauvignon blanc). As always, don’t use a “cooking wine”, use a wine you enjoy drinking – you’ll taste it in the sauce so make it delicious! If you’d prefer not to cook with wine, a little extra stock will work very well.
  • THYME – I use dried in this, but fresh is kind of amazing.
  • CHICKEN STOCK – grab a carton from the store, or make your own homemade chicken stock.
  • DIJON MUSTARD – don’t sub this for yellow mustard. A good substitute would be whole grain, stone ground or deli mustard.
  • SOUR CREAM – feel free to use heavy cream, yogurt or half and half. Watch the skillet so it doesn’t boil, and curdle.
